I need some info please. After two weeks on suboxone and having some mild, yet unpleasant side effects such as dry mouth & eyes, dull headaches, foggy head, feeling "out of it" , nausea & depression my doc switched me tonight from suboxone 16mg/day to subutex 16mg per day. We are going to try this because even though it's a tiny chance, there have been people who have a sensitivity to the naloxone (naltrexone) in suboxone that can cause nausea and depression....He didn't think it would hurt to try.
I'm not one who ever crushed pills to snort or shoot and that's the only reason the naloxone is in the suboxone so there's no danger of that happening. Has anybody here gone from suboxone to subutex or vice versa? How were your side effects with either, both? Is there anything I should look out for? He, my doc, said I probably will notice no difference at all as they are both 16 mg of buprenorphine but if it is a sensitivity to the naloxone then I should feel better in a few days.
Thanks for any advice or support!
